Forum: etree Subject: File metadata XML invalid - typical causes

The uploader was using some weird symbols for notes which was causing the failure. Here, I'll try pasting them and see if the forum can read them:

First one: §

Second one: ß

Pretty much any symbol not on the standard 104 key keyboard will cause this right now. Another common cause is an accent over the letter "e", like so:

Renè

-or-

Québec

The Breakfast has a song that uses that, so it was a rather common occurence for their uploads. Here's a few more I just found on a website:

Piña
François
Strômberg
Humlegårdsgatan
æ
ø
ö

etc... This deserves an FAQ section, creating one now: http://www.archive.org/about/faqs.php#221

Hopefully in the future this won't break metadata.
